From March 2016, Trish Hayes will become the new Director General of Roads, Devolution and Motoring at the Department for Transport, replacing acting director general John Dowie.
In a press release issued by the Department for transport today she said:
“This is an exciting time to be taking up this key role, with the government delivering the biggest investment in roads for a generation. I’m looking forward to working with partners across the country to ensure that our roads and local transport networks, which help shape the day to day quality of life of all our citizens, are safe, modern and reliable. I can’t wait to get started.”
We wish the new Director General luck in her new role and look forward to pot-hole free motoring in the hopefully not too distant future!
